Hi I'm Cynthia! **WELCOME** to my page!

***SURPRISE!!*** User Name change! Once AROSEFORC; Now HLTHAPPINESS4C it is! Why the change? It's because I need a daily reminder of what my goals are to be. Happy and Healthy & SO DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!

Now when I mean happy I don't mean goody goody happy joy everything's perfect and wonderful. I mean happy as in to be content and thankful even in the difficult circumstances. To find my Happiness and Joy in the Lord, not just during the Good times, but through the Trials as well..

I don't always know where I'm going as I don't always follow the given path, but I know I am wonderfully and fearfully made. I can not fail with Christ! My mantra is I CAN and WILL BE VICTORIOUS. You CAN too!

I've been a sparkler here for about 12 years now. It's been quite the journey. I started out at 170 my highest weight ever and I was ready to do whatever it took to lose the weight. (healthy ways) After a couple of years I came so close to my goal weight of 130 lbs. I felt on top of the world, but it was short lived. I have struggled with Binge Eating Disorder for years and it reared its ugly head and I all but gave up. Needless to say I have regained all of the weight back + a few more. (Current weight December of 2019 is 189 pounds) I've also struggled with Fibromyalgia and arthritis the past 9 years. making it very difficult to function and do daily tasks which includes exercise.But I believe through Christ I can do ALL things. I can and will overcome!

My biggest accomplishment is that on February 29,2008 I quit smoking and with that came the gift of being able to breathe. That gift of fresh air opened the door to this journey!

I came to Spark People lonely, sad, frustrated with myself about the shape I had let myself get into. I didn't know a thing about fitness and nutrition, but in the years that I have been here I have learned a lot. I might not always follow the path that leads to victory, but I try where I can from veering too far off. And even when I seem to be falling from a cliff...He is there to catch me and get me back on track.....and so are my wonderful SP friends! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support!

Again: I CAN and WILL succeed and so CAN YOU!!

2019 is nearly at a close. Part of the year (and last year) I really struggled with depression and anxiety. Fortunately the past couple of months the depression has improved. For that I am incredibly grateful! Another blessing is that the fibromyalgia has also improved. I still have days with pain, but they are much fewer and far between. The fatigue continues to be with me. I've learned that napping when necessary and listening to my body are very important to self care.

My goals this past year were not focused on weight loss. They mostly pertained to improving self care and dealing with my depression and anxiety. I 've not made goals for 2020. I do know they will be small steps to be healthier. And I am talking teeny tiny baby steps.

My favorite way to work out is walk. I live in a downtown area where there are gorgeous walking trails through the parks.

I had a sweet miniature dachshund named Lucky who recently passed away (Nove 2013) I miss him so much as he was my walking buddy. I also love cats and have one named Gabbie! She really fits her name as she is quite vocal!
